Windows 10: Can't update Windows 10 Anniversary
OK. I have it downloaded and ready to go. I had previously already made a bootable flash drive with the most recent Win10 build so ready as I can be.
I had previously already used a program called Produkey-x64 to track down my windows 10 key because I encountered that issue last time around. But I thought I would try the new one and make sure the key I found was the same (which it was). But when I ran it, I got this error.. I didn't IGNORE or ALLOW the issue, but just closed the defender page. I have a feeling its clean and defender is just trying to protect the registry as this is a kind of exploit tool or whatever you want to call it so I wasn't too worried but I thought I would bring it to your attention. See what came up.
I just downloaded and ran it on a system with ESET installed, no issues.
See the note on the download page
But, to be sure, here are the hashes for you to check the zipped download file:
The current version includes a routine that checks GitHub for newer versions. Some Anti-Malware applications may flag it as PUP. It's a false positive.
MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility
Okay. Give me a few - need to get something else done first.
Getting screenshots now. Be back in a few.
Windows Repair Tool by Tweaking.com
When installing, select "make shortcuts available to all users" and "create desktop icon" (default).
Let the program open, to make sure it's installed properly.
- All data is backed up right?
- Disconnect all external peripherals from the system; nothing but mouse, keyboard and monitor connected (wired preferred).
- Verify there are no bangs in Device Manager.
- Verify Fast Startup is OFF.
- Create a restore point if able. (At this point, you would normally make a Macrium system image of the entire drive, so you can go back and start over if things go south. In your case, however, a clean install is next on the list, so a system image is not necessary.)
- Reboot to Safe Mode.
Once in safe mode, run the System File Checker:
Advise the results. The preferred result is ďNo integrity violations foundĒ.
Go to Step 3, and check the disk for errors.
If a chkdsk is required, go ahead and schedule it for next boot. Then reboot the machine and let it run.
Here is a tut to view the results when itís finished:
Chkdsk Log in Event Viewer - Read in Windows 10
Back in Safe Mode:
Go to tab Step 2, and open the Pre-Scan.
Click Start Scan. When itís finished, save the results and post them in the thread using CODE tags (# button).
Depending on the results, we may or may not want to run these repairs.
Stop here and report the results. I will make another post with repair steps to run, but don't run them until we've determined if this scan shows repairs needed, and what they are, and decide if we should do them or not.
These are the repairs based on the problems you're having. They are subject to change, depending on what the above scan shows.
Back in Safe Mode
Go to the Repair Tab and click Open Repairs.
Tic the following boxes:
01-Reset Registry Permissions
02-Reset File Permissions (should show C drive only)
03-Reset Service Permissions
04-Register System Files
06-Repair Windows Firewall
07-Repair Internet Explorer
10-Remove Policies Set by Infections
15-Repair Proxy Settings
17-Repair Windows Updates
21-Repair MSI (Windows Installer)
26-Restore Important Windows Services
- Perform the repairs.
- Save the log and post it here.
- Reboot the system into normal mode.
- Give it about 5 minutes or so, then reboot into safe mode and run the same repairs again.
- Save the log and post it again.
- Reboot into normal mode.
- Run Windows Update and report the results.
I'm gonna be AFK for a few hours, so no rush, but if you post the scan results I'll try to look at them.
I was reading your first message about making sure I had my data backed up. And that got me to thinking I should probably do at least 1 more check on my system and ensure there was nothing lingering or NEW. My son had downloaded a bunch of new stuff (N64 Iso's and an emulator), and i was uncertain to say the least if my system would still be clean. It wasn't. I'm running all the scans now. I'll post the messages but hopefully it doesn't throw a monkey wrench into the plans.
Good move. It's difficult to try and fix an OS with an active infection.
Feel free to post the logs for eval..
